This historic guard station offers you a unique stay in the oldest Forest Service building on the Shasta-Trinity National Forest. This charming two-story structure was built in 1916 under the direction of John T. Grey, District Ranger of the Mad River Ranger District on the old Trinity National Forest. The upper and lower levels of the guard station measure 24x18 feet and can accommodate up to eight people. The lower level has a large kitchen area, oak table, chairs, couch, and indoor bathroom accommodations. The upper level is finished in striking pinewood, has two beds, and is separated by a partition wall. A five-foot high porch adorns the front of the cabin.
